Satoshis Games, a rocket bitcoin-based startup, is bringing a revolutionary new model to the gaming industry: the integration of the Internet of Money (Bitcoin) to the gaming experience. Using the newly born instant micropayment technology Lighting Network, this new approach provides Satoshis Games’ users three strong attractions to play their games:
- Secured currency: regular games use economic systems based on fictitious coins (e.g. gold in World of Warcraft) which are vulnerable to exploits (players can lose their coins). Using bitcoin as the in-game currency allows users to withdraw their balances into their wallets, but unlike digital tokens (e.g. Fortnite's V-Bucks) funds can’t be stolen/lost;
- Reliable economic incentives: currently players spend money and time without being able to extract valuable items from the games (e.g. Non-Fungible Tokens as game skins or earning bitcoin by playing games). At Satoshis Games, users can train their skills at no cost, and then earn bitcoin rewards by beating the system or other players ;
- Broad Interoperability: nowadays, most games have their specific token, which is valuable only within the game and cannot be used in other games or services. This applies to both crypto-tokens (crypto-collectibles, NFTs) and traditional digital tokens (e.g. Fortnite’s V-Bucks). The possibility to use your gaming earnings to play any other game accepting cryptocurrency sets a new unbeatable competitive advantage over traditional games.
First reactions during the first few months couldn’t be more promising: after achieving immediate zero-cost market traction on first MVP (satoshis.games) - 24k users base, 2k monthly active users in three months, and closing its first round of fundraising ($200K), Satoshis Games started working on the development of a new game designed for the bigger audience of gamers (not restricted to the crypto niche) which integrates the Bitcoin Lightning Network as a means to create more interactive gaming experiences.
Light Nite, the name of this new game whose development can be followed at lightnite.io, has already generated pre-sales revenues of $9K during November and December 2019. Its freemium model includes in-game purchases, transaction fees and in-game advertising.
Next gaming revolution is close, powered by the most liquid digital asset in the crypto space, and the highest scalable blockchain technology - Lightning Network, running transparently for the user where deserved fun is served more
